ADK-ON will celebrate the first Annual North Country National Scenic Trail Day to be held on the 4th Saturday in September annually starting Sept. 27, 2014. It will be conjunction with National Public Lands and Hunting and Fishing Days. Imagine the profile North Country National Scenic Trail

[NCNST] will gain when all sponsoring organizations host an event on the trail the same day in seven states.

ADK-ON will offer two hikes to celebrate North Country National Scenic Trail Day and National Public Lands Day. One will trip be on the NCNST concurrent with the Finger Lakes Trail in Highland Onondaga County Forest [Map O1] and the other will on the NCNST route to Stone Dam Lake in Black River Wild Forest within the Adirondack Park. It is fitting that both events are on public lands.

Events are open to the public and families are encouraged to participate.

The Finger Lakes Trail Conference will also sponsor a hike in the Little Rock City section [Map M 2] of the concurrent FLT/NCNST. Look for an event sponsored by the NCTA CNY Chapter as well. Specifics will be in each sponsors’ newsletter/website.
